I liked this idea, of nomad miner-mercenaries, trading and fighting across the galaxy, and so I came up with some rules for them which can be found in this thread here and then... did nothing.
That was in 2009.
So, six years later, I finally got off my bum, and did something about it - et voila:
A squad of Varingr mercenaries carrying bolt carbines, supported by a flamer, in Tau service! Figures from the inimitable Kev White of Hasslefree Miniatures.
Oh, and just to prove I have in fact been painting other things...
Black Templars! AMEN AND ATTACK!
